Here’s a post in honor of the Super Bowl…and my efforts to resolve the lower portion of this sculpture. I’ve got a couple deadlines coming up, so I’m committed to getting a good amount of art done today.
This weekend I’m working on photos of my recent work including this piece called “Little Needs” that I made from an old fur coat, a stuffed animal, old jewelry, gold leaf, and beads. Other than the beads and thread, I didn’t buy any of it–it was all random stuff I found here and there.
People donate all kinds of interesting things to the nonprofit organization I work for. It’s great for the found object artist. I was looking through a donation the other day and opened a container to find a mass of twisted, used twist-ties. All together they looked really interesting and a little (should I admit it) repulsive. Now they’re destined for art.
I organized my studio over the Christmas break. Of course I found quite a few interesting little bits and pieces that I’d forgotten about, including these jointed cake decorations. Some still had cake on them, so I decided to finally wash them off. I love the silvery bubbles as seen from below.
